College Counseling

Who says the college application process has to be stressful? Not us.
We’ve developed a four-year comprehensive, counseling model that works. With our approach, students and their families have plenty of time to plan, prepare and apply. Our track record speaks for itself. Our seniors regularly receive multiple offers of admission to nationally recognized colleges and universities globally.

An Individualized Approach

Every Marymount student engages in not only a rigorous academic and active co-curricular program, but also a thorough and individualized personal development program. 

Our College Counseling, Advising, Human Development and Spiritual Life programs give students the tools needed to thrive on a psychological, emotional and interpersonal level, and these curricula evolve year-after-year to meet the particular needs of students at that time.

    Set Sail 
    Program Dates:
    Session 1: August 5th - 6th
    Session 2: August 7th - 8th

    An intensive college admission workshop designed to provide students with an opportunity to complete college applications, essays, and supplements. One-on-one advising from college counselors, interactive guest speaker sessions and mentorship from college admission representatives are all part of this comprehensive program.

    This summer program jump-starts the college application process. Students will return to campus a little early and join their college counselors as they: refine their college list, complete their Common Application form, create an extracurricular résumé, develop working drafts of their college essays, gain pointers from admission professionals… and much, much more!

    Contact Mr. PJ Petrone (ext. 328) or Ms. Sarah Miller (ext. 330), Co -Directors of College Counseling, for more information or to register.


    College Night for Senior Parents 
    Wednesday, August 21st at 7:00pm 
    Digital Resource Center 
    Mandatory one parent, no students

    The evening's session marks a pivotal transition from the college search process to the college application process. By this point in time, you all are well-versed in the language of both admission and financial aid. Now is the time to institute a strategic and personalized application plan including a finalized college list, application logistics, deadlines, and expectations of both college counselors and students.


    College Night for Junior Parents
    Wednesday, August 28th at 7:00pm
    Digital Resource Center
    Mandatory one parent, no students 

    Our college counseling philosophy hinges upon the notion that truly meaningful exploration of college options takes time. In light of this, we aim to engage the Marymount families in a sophisticated conversation about the intricacies of the college selection process, allowing our students to get ahead of the college search process, rather than it getting ahead of them. Time will be spent understanding the specific strengths a student possesses and where those strengths will be most valued.
